Corn notches second win on Rend

Corn notches second win on Rend
Toby Corn of West Frankfort, Ill., won the July 20 Illini Division on Rend Lake with a limit weighing 14 pounds, 12 ounces. Corn walked away with a check for close to $6,800 thanks to his victory.

WHITTINGTON, Ill., - Toby Corn of West Frankfort, Ill., weighed a five-bass limit totaling 14 pounds, 12 ounces Saturday to win the Walmart Bass Fishing League Illini Division event on Rend Lake. For his victory, Corn earned $6,794.

Corn used his local knowledge to edge out the field by for his second BFL win on Rend Lake.

"The lake fished very similar," Corn said. "I started guiding there when I was 16; I've literally fished tournaments my whole life there.

"I was fishing main-lake point bushes in the morning, and in the afternoon I was stroking a jig like we do on Kentucky Lake," Corn added. "Around noon I pulled up on one spot, and I had a 5-pounder and two 3-pounders in about eight casts.

"The wind was a major hindrance for me this tournament," Corn went on to say. "I could not fish my prime areas. The area I caught my three big fish on I hadn't fished all year."

Corn said he fished a black and blue Lunker Lure Rattleback jig in 3/8- and 1/2-ounce sizes on 10-pound-test line so that it would fall faster and trigger a reaction strike.

Rounding out the top 10 pros:

2nd: Kenny Hemmen, St. Louis, Mo., five bass, 14-8, $1,897
3rd: Kenneth Shadwell, Decatur, Ill., five bass, 14-4, $1,265

Boaters will compete for a top award of a Ranger Z518 with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard and a Chevy Silverado, while co-anglers will fish for a new Ranger Z518 with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard.

The BFL is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, with 120 tournaments throughout the season, five in each division. The top 40 boaters and co-anglers from each division qualify for a regional tournament and compete to finish in the top six, which then qualifies them for one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing - the Walmart BFL All-American presented by Chevy. Top winners in the BFL can move up to the EverStart Series or even the Walmart FLW Tour.
